The Lecture Hall

The Lecture Hall is an elegant, versatile space located on Level 1. It offers a maximum capacity of 500 people in reception-style – but it may also be combined with the adjoining Library to cater for events of up to 1,000 guests.

The room features grand triple height ceilings, natural daylight, and optional black-out facilities – providing a versatile space for holding conferences, seminars, exhibitions, and even graduation ceremonies.

The Lecture Hall also has a built-in stage and customisable lighting, which make it ideal for intimate concerts or ensemble groups. This space is directly accessible from the Grand Foyer, which can be used as a convenient registration area if needed.

Menus and catering

Catering in the Lecture Hall is as flexible as the space itself, and we have an extensive range of menus for you to choose from.

These range from canapé and grazing menus to bowl food, buffet options, and street food – all partnered with an equally extensive drinks list. Or, if you would prefer a bespoke menu, we can also work with our on-site catering partner to create it for you.

Catering and refreshments are normally set up in the Library, which adjoins the Lecture Hall and is identical in style and grandeur.

The best venue team I have ever worked with, so accommodating and helpful.
